My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

Crap. That is such a nasty word. Well I found out today that the sale date of my home is Mar. 25. I have absolutely NO IDEA what we are going to do. But I suppose I need to figure out something soon. I had so hoped we could have made it in the house until August when the girls start school. I've been having lots of interviews here recently. That is a positive. I'm going out tomorrow and just apply to restaurants and stores just to get something coming in. I've started looking for boxes on craigslist. We had planned to get rid of 1/2 of our toys this weekend because we still have too much. So I guess that is a good thing. I just need to be really ambitious about gettin rid of about 2/3 of what we have. I'm going to try and sell as much as possible through craigslist as well. Crap. Anyone have any suggestions?
